Shiki Kurobane – Sequel Review

2013-10-30 20.48.23(That’s a bold statement coming from someone who used to sleep 20 hours a day.  How did he fall asleep before meeting MC??)

Basic Story Premise: You are living in the Demon House and enjoying your role as Shiki’s girlfriend body pillow.  However, you start to think about what the future has in store for you and Shiki.  When you suggest that he should meet your family, he flatly refuses.  His denial of your family leaves you confused and uncertain about your relationship.  Your uncertainty intensifies when a beautiful demon suddenly shows up at the house when you are alone and orders you to leave Shiki so that he can return to his home in the Demon Realm.  Who is this gorgeous demon, and why does she want you out of Shiki’s life? What will happen to your relationship if he is forced to leave you and the Human Realm?

My review with some spoilers, screenshots, and CGs after the jump.  No walkthrough because both endings are available to read after you finish reading the story once.

Shiki Kurobane – Main Story Review

2013-09-13 13.41.16(This is Shiki’s version of a compliment.  Seriously.)

Basic Story Premise: You ask for 10 more days to live so that you can confess your feelings for someone you have only loved from afar.  And you choose Shiki to be your unwilling demon guardian.  Shiki is a difficult demon to deal with: he calls you an idiot, says you look gross, and even headbutts you (yes, really).  And yet, you find yourself enjoying spending time with him more and more with each passing day when you should be focusing on confessing your love to someone else.  Is it possible that you are falling in love with Shiki instead? What does this mean for the two of you, since you are a human doomed as “toast”? Can Shiki come up with a way to save you?

My review with some spoilers, screenshots, and CGs after the jump.  No walk-through because both endings are available to read after you finish the story once.  Continue reading
